ultrasound #2

The tiniest Bowling has doubled in size in the last ten days, now coming in at an impressive four centimeters and change! Of course, the measurement varies depending on the angle of the view and the position of the baby (napping today, for most of the ultrasound) but we are assured that the baby is at just the right size for the timetable.

We're out and about right now, but will post today's pictures when we get home. In one of them, you can see that Bowling Jr. is stretched out very luxuriously, enjoying the comfort while it's still roomy in there!

baby, baby, baby

We did the first ultrasound today.... The baby was dancing around, waving arms and legs very excitedly, so we got a really good look instead of the vague peanut shape we were expecting. They gave us a couple of pictures to take home with us. Here is the better one (which really doesn't do justice to how much it actually looks like a BABY already!) The doctor didn't get a picture of the dancing, wiggly poses because she was too busy being surprised at how much wiggling and dancing there was. So anyway, here he/she is:

Dr. appointment on Friday

It probably bears mentioning that we are going on Friday to get our first ultrasound done! We might post pictures (depending on if we get a take-home print out) so stay tuned!

Tennessee trip

We thought it might be good to mention that we're on a Mon-Thurs trip to Tennessee to see Grandpa Jack and enjoy the fine weather. (We haven't seen 70 degree days in months!)
